22. The apartment was a converted asylum
“Not a realtor, but I used to rent an apartment that was in a converted victorian asylum. It was rumored to be haunted but I never heard or saw anything whilst living there.
When I met with a letting agent to hand the keys back at the property, and for him to run through a final inspection he asked if we had been ‘happy’ there. I said something to the effect of yes, but we were only moving as the landlord had it up for sale. It became clear he was after some kind of ghost story as he explained that none of his colleagues liked going to any apartments in the building because when taking photos to market one of them, the red eye detector kept triggering on his phone when no one was in frame!
The poor guy looked nervous as hell the whole time we were there.” — Zutsky
